Stunning maidens with long flowing red hair and medieval subject matter painted in meticulously realistic detail describe much of the output of the Pre-Raphaelite painters. Emerging from the industrialization of the Victorian Age of England, the Pre-Raphaelites fought against the conservative nature of the both the British Academy and their time period. Their style and works of art shot them to fame, encouraged more originality and realism in art, and helped to inspire and encourage the Arts and Crafts Movement of artistic design and craftmanship.
